What might explain this is our physical collecting criterion looks for all discs we do not have, but our current digitization funding de-prioritizes classical albums and10" records.

Since we do not catalog the discs that have not been digitized, we do not yet have a way to know which classical discs we have.

OK. I have finished cataloging and de-duplication research for these records. Total count was 398 (physical records.) Count of unique physical records not currently appearing on archive.org is 125. Nearly all of those are 12". About half are in intact albums, the remainder are "loose" (I have slip covers for 10" records, but not 12".) I'm ready to at least explore the possibility of donating the lot of 125. I do have more questions, pursuant to that:
1. Is there any way for someone at archive.org to look over my list (csv attached,) and at least do a sanity check on records that you have in your possession, but have not yet scanned and listed, to possibly further reduce the number?
2. Most of the records appear to be in good condition. There are a couple that are warped, actually more "dished" than "warped" (symmetric.) A few have significant dust. A couple have some vestiges of what could be mold or mildew. Are there any steps that I need to take to clean or flatten records before shipment?
3. What is your advice on shipping?
4. What other details need to be taken care of for this donation?

Thanks.
SAM
